I am ready to create some quilts!

I am ready to start piecing and quilting.  It has been a long time since I have been settled enough to feel inspired to turn on my sewing machine. 
Life is good!!

This is my sewing machine set up.  I have windows all along the wall to my left when I am sewing.  I also face the sitting area in the basement and can watch tv if I need distracting from what I am working on.

I have an area in the basement that is described as a 'bunker'  It is totally underground and has four steps down to get into it.  The area has great lighting and lots of clean space so it has become my storage space for all my quilting and sewing supplies. This is the entrance to my bunker.

Right down the stairs and in the heart of the bunker.  Storage shelves on one wall and I spent time labelling all my containers.  Still have a few more to go through but I know where most of my 'stuff' is and can find what I am looking for fairly quickly.

I decided to keep all my books in my bunker so put the bookshelf in here along with my rolling carts of odd and ends, bits and pieces.  Once I am totally organized (in a perfect world), I will go through all of these drawers and get them labelled with contents. 

Back up at my sewing machine, standing at the door from the bunker, gazing out into the room with the view of our backyard and valley.  Seems dark but it is the way the camera percieved the lighting while standing at the back of the room.

So, am ready to create something.  Time to get a project underway and get my machine humming.  Hopefully, I will post more often and have some finished projects to show you.


  1. Great sewing space and storage! You certainly have worked hard for it. Enjoy!

  2. It's gorgeous, Carolyn! Enjoy!

  3. What a wonderful sewing space, so envious of you.

  4. A gorgeous studio. A separate room for your books and supplies helps keep the sewing area tidier. Love the view!

  5. Fantastic! I love your space, how can it not inspire!
